It is a concept fully related to storytelling, emotional stimuli and brand curation. This platform has quickly become a reference in the online eco community and is a go to destination for beautiful, trendy, unique, sustainable but still very affordable labels.

Implementing the Project
Sophie’s main requirements for the site set up were to create an effective and fashionable eCommerce platform based on the Multi-Vendor software including all the corresponding features: availability of vendor accounts and handy admin panels, clear pricing for the software license excluding any hidden payments, user-friendly and intuitive interface, opportunity to extend functionality with seamlessly added plugins. She explains her choice of the CS-Cart solution as it does fully meets her requirements to such a software:

What Sophie says: “So first of all, I really just feel safe as I know I can always lean back on Simtech and my own relationship manager here at Simtech when I have issues with my website or server. For someone like me who has no clue about coding nor hosting, this is brilliant. Moreover, this allows me to really focus on my main business. Also, since I moved from my own hosting account to Simtech’s Cloud Hosting, a lot has been made easier for me. In the beginning, I wanted to have everything as cheap as possible. That is why I had my own account. However, I realized that this is very bad. Due to the fact that I have no clue about hosting and server, I never had any clue when sent me a notification. One time my server even got hacked. Now, since I moved to Simtech Cloud Hosting, I feel 100% safe and I don’t have to worry about anything which is awesome”.
